Connect Seattle

Connect Seattle is a long-term citywide campaign to create a complete network of bikeways connecting neighborhoods across the city so everyone can ride safely. The campaign is powered by a network of neighborhood teams led by caring neighbors working together.

Connect Seattle's long-term priority is to secure funding to build 250 miles of new protected bike lanes, neighborhood greenways, and trails in the next decade. Our short-term priorities include important projects in Ballard, Downtown, Northgate, Portage Bay, Rainier Valley and the Westlake Corridor. 

Connect teams are currently focusing the majority of their efforts at supporting the Move Seattle Levy that will provide essential funding to implement half the Bicycle Master Plan over the next nine years. Join the effort to Keep Seattle Moving and sign up to volunteer at our phone banks and canvasses.
